Re: Isn't that a bit risky?
Nokia kept the patents. Microsoft just got a license to them
light vs energy
although I believe in your numbers about the stability of the amount of money spent, I don't think that comes from more light on our houses. You get more efficient lights, you use more energy on computers, tablets, smartphones, etc.
Our energy consumption is not going to fall, that's for sure, but due to new uses, not for brighter lights indoors.
they are, obviously, looking for cows
Re: Similar to mine
Yes, and you forgot to mention that yours will be stuck on whatever version of OS they came with...

"agricultural workers were healthier than the general population"
Absolutly no relation to the fact that they do exercise everyday, right?
Instead of sitting all day at the computer and watch tv all night, as the general population do...
Forget about the facts

"could strike with precision over a long range whilst remaining undetected.”
And it stayed undetected for 6 months...
Did/can the planet survive?
Of course the planet will survive!
The big question here are the consequencies for life on the planet, humans included.
One thing we know for sure: plenty of insects will make it...

"Don't get too excited"
Forget the bluetooth part, and build an Android computer inside. Like a tablet, but with keyboard and using a large monitor / TV set
As a consumer, I would like to buy whatever hardware (cell phone) I like and install whatever OS I choose. Android compatibility would be needed, to tap into the huge number of available apps.
As cell phones close the gap to PCs, in terms of power and usage, I expect to have those same options.
Re: Swing and a miss ... of the point
Yes, and that world changing £800 marvel, didn't even support copy past!
chill out, wait for a more mature product, then make a fair review...
A back camera is mandatory for any augmented reality application
if you go to any page for which you have a saved password, and the browser auto-completes the login form, you can manipulate the html input tag, stating that the input is not of type password, and the password will show up easily...
If we have a reference to RT, surely the best name would be SkyDive
play videos stored on your device
"It can't stream anything that you've loaded directly onto the control device."
If it can show the contents of your Chrome browser, you can watch your device's videos. Just drag and drop them into a Chrome tab...
USA <-> CHINA
wasn't it supposed for the USA to put pressure on China to respect human rights and all that? It now looks like that it's USA using China's methods instead!
Re: And if I already wear normal glasses?
you can write an app that takes a video feed from where you are looking at, and put it right in front of your eyes (hummm, your eye), so you don't need prescription lenses anymore.
"Folks who want porn can buy an Android phone" - For the looks of it, most people in the world want porn...
Re: Easy fix

Re: "...shaping up to be a high-water mark for Unity fans"
$sudo vi /etc/hosts
leave my SIM alone!!!
I want to be able to use my contract with whatever phone I want, like borrow one if my phone dies, and I want to be able to use my phone in whatever operator I feel like, as in traveling abroad.
Stop this "kill the SIM" nonsense now!
Re: I'm sorry...
they can always switch back to Minitel...
Dart runs 130 per cent faster
"The goal is for Dart to become twice as fast."
If I did the math right, are they trying to slow it down?
Twice as fast is 100% faster...
STOP, because they are going too fast!
If you need to ask, then you can't afford it!
cookies are used to give state to a stateless protocol. Without them you are always a new user reaching the site for the first time ever.
Of course you can avoid using cookies by passing the session variable on the URL, but for the user the consequences, for good and for bad, are the same.
I will call it choice when they give me the same hardware and I can choose which OS I want...

Re: I won't be moving to Skype
I think the biggest problem will be for those using an msn client in their feature phones. There's no upgrade path for them...
watch out for that reset button coming your way!
Re: Good article
I wonder how many man years have been lost reading this article...
So, for a moment, you really thought they would be doing it with people? really?
why the rant? They never said it was "environmentally-friendly", just that it was electrically powered...
"conceal them from predators, such as dolphin" - and as everyone knows, dolphins don't use a sonar to spot their preys...
Re: Big screen Mistake
I would like to see a modular design like this but, instead of a phone sloting into the tablet, a compute module sloting into a small screen (making it a phone) or a big screen (making it a tablet)
yes, but is it dead or alive?
Ooops, sorry. That only goes for android...
Why stop for tests?
what will they do if they found some malfunction? take it to the mechanic?
put it in the right place ASAP and then test it with the real subjects of the mission...
GO, as opposite for STOP...
Maybe it was the SATA controller that died, not the hdisk...
Nokia satnav is great, beeing free, and allowing you to pre-download the maps. But, for route planning, it will need a gsm connection and, while abroad, that can be very expensive
That would be foolish
SIMs are great, in the way that you can insert it in whatever phone you want and access your phone service. If Apple had it their way, a software SIM, if your phone dies (battery, water, whatever), what would you need to do to access your phone service?
Re: That's all nice and everything....
I'm not holding my breath either, but because I already have FTTH. I stopped holding it 2 years ago...
Re: Fun and Great Games and Beta Deep C Phishing sure does beat any kind of Angling
always nice to see people replying to a Bot...
The bigger fail is
allowing non latin characters on the domain.
You see a domain printed on some magazine, you want to visit that domain, but you don't have a clue on how to do it.
Of course you can argue that, for example, people living in Russia already had to use latin characters to use the web. But they already do it! And they can reach ALL the internet using them. They can even reach chinese and japanese web sites...
"Toshiba expects you to rely on the power coming from your laptop, which is convenient, and fine if you can have it plugged into the mains" - So, you don't want to have the laptop plugged into the mains and, at the same time, you want to do it with the monitor... makes perfect sense!
It's a shame...
..that they opted to make the keyboard incompatible with the previous model.
So, if I buy one of these (and I'm really thinking about it), will I have to throw the keyboard out, when I decide to upgrade to the next model? It really makes no sense (other than Asus wanting to sell another keyboard)
they should only assign a new major version when the code changes break extension's compatibility
